PKK conflict with Turkey 'coming to an end', says Kurdish leader

Demonstrators hold up flags with the portrait of Kurdish leader Abdullah Öcalan as they take part in a rally on August 9, 2014 in Frankfurt am Main, GermanyThe outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party’s 30-year conflict with Turkey is coming to an end, the group’s jailed leader said on Saturday, hailing the start of a new democratic process in the country. The PKK, which for three decades fought a bloody insurgency for self-rule for Turkey’s Kurdish minority that cost 40,000 lives, launched its armed struggle on August 15, 1984. “On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of our struggle, I want to state that we are on the verge of historic developments,” Ocalan said in a statement quoted by the Firat news agency, which is close to the PKK. He said that the process could become a model for solving conflicts not only in Turkey “but in the entire region”.
